Susan Glasser: Trump damaged US credibility

Susan Glasser: Trump damaged US credibility
Trump Damaged US Credibility | GZERO World

The Trump presidency might be over (for now), but The New Yorker staff writer Susan Glasser views it as an "active crime scene" because Trump remains influential in current — and perhaps future — US politics.

What's more, some of his most controversial moves are still having ripple effects today. Like threatening to pull out of NATO.

On GZERO World with Ian Bremmer, recorded for the first time in front of a live studio audience, Glasser explains how Trump's disdain for the alliance caused great uncertainty among its other members, even as NATO has become more united than ever before to respond to Russia's war in Ukraine.

She wonders whether they trust America's word anymore. The damage Trump did to US credibility "when it comes to making deals is very, very serious."
